Sendgrid Migration Guide

Upgrading to 1.0.0

We're continuously striving to enhance the quality and reliability of our connectors at Airbyte.

As part of our commitment to delivering exceptional service, we are transitioning Source Sendgrid from the Python Connector Development Kit (CDK) to our new low-code framework improving maintainability and reliability of the connector. Due to differences between the Python and low-code CDKs, this migration constitutes a breaking change.

  • The configuration options have been renamed to api_key and start_date.
  • The unsubscribe_groups stream has been removed as it was a duplicate of suppression_groups. You can use suppression_groups and get the same data you were previously receiving in unsubscribe_groups.
  • The single_sends stream has been renamed to singlesend_stats. This was done to more closely match the data from the Sendgrid API.
  • The segments stream has been upgraded to use the Sendgrid 2.0 API as the previous version of the API has been deprecated. As a result, fields within the stream have changed to reflect the new API.

To ensure a smooth upgrade, please clear your streams and trigger a sync to bring in historical data.

Migration Steps

For Airbyte Open Source: Update the local connector image

Airbyte Open Source users must manually update the connector image in their local registry before proceeding with the migration. To do so:

  1. Select Settings in the main navbar.
    1. Select Sources.
  2. Find Sendgrid in the list of connectors.

You will see two versions listed, the current in-use version and the latest version available.

  1. Select Change to update your OSS version to the latest available version.

Update the connector version

  1. Select Sources in the main navbar.
  2. Select the instance of the connector you wish to upgrade.

Each instance of the connector must be updated separately. If you have created multiple instances of a connector, updating one will not affect the others.

  1. Select Upgrade
    1. Follow the prompt to confirm you are ready to upgrade to the new version.

For Airbyte Cloud and Open Source: Steps to Update Schema and Clear Streams

To clear your data for the affected streams, follow the steps below:

  1. Select Connections in the main navbar and select the connection(s) affected by the update.
  2. Select the Schema tab.
    1. Select Refresh source schema to bring in any schema changes. Any detected schema changes will be listed for your review.
    2. Select OK to approve changes.
  3. Select Save changes at the bottom of the page.
    1. Ensure the Clear affected streams option is checked to ensure your streams continue syncing successfully with the new schema.
  4. Select Save connection.

This will clear the data in your destination for the subset of streams with schema changes. After the clear succeeds, trigger a sync by clicking Sync Now. For more information on clearing your data in Airbyte, see this page.
